Everyone of Ann's staff was professional, thoroughly friendly and responsible, especially Ann. She and her crew did an excellent job and I would highly recommend Miss 50's Inc.
TJS Broadview, IL January, 2016

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Ann and her crew. My grandmother passed away in November 2014 and she was a HOARDER. Obsessed with QVC, Gem shopping Network, Native American collectibles, Hummels, Precious Moments, Pottery, Holiday decorations and so on, and so on, and so on. We didn't know where to start. After speaking to my real estate agent, he suggested going with miss 50s Estate Sales. I was a little worried about hiring a company out for this, but I know it would take me years to figure out how to sell everything for the price things would be worth. I thought about interviewing a few companies to do the sale, but after meeting Ann, I didn't even try to meet anyone else. She was professional, explained the process in a way I could understand (I am 29 years old and have never been an executor of an estate before) and made me feel like she could take a HUGE weight off of my shoulders (which to me was most important).

She went above and beyond for my grandma's estate. She knew we had too much for one sale, and she split it into two very organized and professional sales. She did so much research to find what things should sell for that I never would have known how to do. She has a great following, and people know to come to her sales (hence, more of your estate will be sold then if you just did it yourself). Then, what few things didn't sell from our sale, she researched an auction company, and took everything to the auction for us and still made us more money just from doing that. So many things that if I had tried to do on my own, it would've taken me years- Ann did an amazing job, that I never could have compared to, and in only a few weeks time.

I went through my grandma's estate sale before it was open to the public, and everything was priced, organized into themes, and looked very neat. I even went to another one of her sales prior to hiring her, and that sale was also organized and professionally done. Ann only lets a certain number of people in at a time, so people don't steal your family's things. She has several people on her crew looking out for your property while
she takes care of the sales. I also feel like if I was going to an estate sale, I wouldn't want to be stepping on other people's toes, so when it is your turn, you actually have space to look through everything.

Whether you are looking to go to an estate sale, or hold one for your family, I highly recommend using Miss 50s Estate Sales. I would give more than 5 stars if I could, and am so grateful this company existed during such a stressful time for my family. Jessica, Westchester, IL April 2015

Our family recently hired Miss 50's (Ann) to conduct an estate sale for my late mother's. home. She had accumulated 70 years (and inherited) many wonderful antiques and lots and lots of just "stuff". About 6 months before hiring Miss 50's, we hired another estate sale company from another town to conduct a sale. There were so many items left over (equivalent of 2 more households!), it was clear we needed to have another sale. I called a few estate sale companies, but they weren't interested in conducting a "repeat". Ann LISTENED and was so understanding of our situation. She decided to at least check out how much was left in my mother's house. She could clearly see that there was more than enough to have another sale.

Any time I needed to speak with Ann, she returned my calls within either minutes or hours. We were in continuous communication as needed. Her professionalism, organizational and communication skills are excellent. The way Ann and her crew organized my mother's belongings made it look as if one was in a lovely combination furniture store/antique and boutique. It was absolutely beautiful!. Ann conducted a pre-sale in addition to two days of the sale which I had never heard of, but was a fantastic idea. The sale went very very well!! She included a detailed itemized list of sold items - etc. I was happy to hear that Ann offered a service to remove any unsold items and have them donated to charities (with a tax deduction receipt). She and her crew left the house clean - swept- vacuumed. That saved me the time and hassle of organizing that not so small detail. Ann truly went above and beyond in that she treated my mother's home as if it was one of her own family members - such respect and compassion. Ann's Passion for her business and her work ethic reminded me very much of how passionate and hard working my mother was in her business. My mother had been a real estate broker in Westchester for more than 50 years. I feel my mother would have been very pleased that we chose Miss 50's to handle the sale for her treasures.

When my father passed earlier this year, we hired Miss 50's to sort through everything he had accumulated over the years and to hold an estate sale. Ann and her staff were professional, helpful, and friendly. They also handled various repairs to the house to get it ready to be sold. It was a team effort. My husband and I were very pleased with the result. Living out of state, we needed someone we could trust to handle everything. They kept us informed, responded quickly to any phone calls and did a great job. I would definitely recommend Miss 50's and her staff.Al & Denise, Bellwood IL March 2013

I wanted to thank you for managing my mother’s estate sale. I was hesitant in contacting someone to handle her possessions but since our first meeting I found you, your staff and agency to be highly professional, personable and honest; possess great integrity and hold a high respect for the owner’s estate. From day one you made it clear that you work for the owner and kept that theme throughout the entire sale with your advertising; anonymity and preparation for the sale. It is without a doubt that I would highly recommend you and your agency to anyone interested in holding an estate sale. I would be happy to speak with prospective clients on your behalf. Thank you – A.W. Westchester IL April 2013

Ann(Ms. 50's) did an Estate Sale for my Mom's house in Westchester at the end of May 2013. Ann and her people were wonderful, set everything up and after cleaned up too!! It was a pleasure to have you do the sale for us! Thank you so much, Kathy ZWestchester May 2013

My brother and I recently had Miss 50's for an estate sale for my late father's home, which we were selling. Ann and John were both very professional and easy to work with. I had no clue where to begin when I contacted Ann, but she led me through it step-by-step. They are also in tune with the emotional stress of selling the belongings of a loved one and how difficult it can be to say goodbye to a childhood home. I highly recommend Miss 50's. –

We just wanted to thank Ann and John for helping us with a very difficult time.....when you loose a love one it is really an emotional time....Ann and her team were so wonderful in helping us through it. She came in and set up the estate sale for us. We could not believe our eyes when we saw how beautiful everything look. It made us fall in love again with the house. The best thing was how wonderful they were to us....We feel like we made new friends. Thanks so much Miss 50's, and we are looking forward to working with you on our other projects!!!! Merry Christmas~
